"Bought this because I had hop up issues with the original barrel, feeding hole was warping and I kept getting backups/jams at the mag, the hop up on the back of this one actually seems a little sturdier than the stock barrel, and the shorter profile of it is much nicer for CQB engagements in game. I actually use this barrel more than the longer one, since it's still super long and accurate, shortening from 509mm (stock inner barrel) to this one, still gives me a longer inner that most standard M4's. So still incredibly accurate when the hop up is dialed in.
All that, and it looks way cooler ;)
"It works...sort of. Only get this if you need to replace broken parts. Full review below.
I have a JG Aug A2 that's probably eight years old now. This part was almost a drop in replacement. I say almost, because the ring around the front half off the barrel assembly where it locks into the receiver was slightly thicker than on the JG, preventing the assembly from locking in place. It was nothing a tiny bit of filing couldn't fix, and I'll forgive this because this kit is made by APS rather than JG and minor incompatibilities like that are to be expected.
What is unforgivable on this is the hop up unit. Everything about it is garbage, including how it is installed at the factory. While trying to figure out why my gun started so consistently double-feeding, I discovered the rear of the barrel to be heavily lubed with bad grease, and the bucking to have not been properly installed. Clearing off the grease and reseating the bucking made it double feed only once every fourth shot, and when it didn't double feed it made my gun chrono 40 fps lower than my other barrel. Not to mention that the parts on the rear of the hop up fall right off at the lightest touch. It's so bad that my 8 year old JG hop up and its worn out stock bucking do a better job, giving me my gun's full stock fps and more-or-less perfect feeding.
Between the hop up and one of the completely threaded screw heads on the assembly, and the muzzle threads that are so tight that I needed gloves to take the flash hider off even after loosening the little hex screw, about the only good thing I can say about the assembly is that the foregrip is much more sturdy than the stock JG one that broke within the first year of ownership.
The barrel itself is made of brass, and it's so heavily crowned that I can't get a solid reading with my calipers. I want to say this might be a 6.04, but don't quote me on that and don't expect it to be of anything above average quality given the rest of this assembly.
The only reason I can see to get a kit like this is if your stock barrel assembly broke. Which is what happened in mine; the rear section where the hop up is secured to the outer barrel assembly broke apart. I have little faith in this unit not to break as well down the line given the quality I've seen from it so far. Ultimately, time will tell.
"Installed this in my JG AUG. Works great. No problems whatsoever. Looks identical to the original JG barrel assembly except of course for the length. Probably the same manufacturer. When changing barrels on these AUGs, do be very careful. You should not just slap these things in and out like you would on a real steel AUG. The hop up is plastic and therefore care is required. Take it slow and you'll be fine.
Carry on, and be careful out there. But do have fun!!!
